  • I think it can be both. It depends on the question being asked. Some things Are embarrassing, so in those cases I think it's out of fear of being judged. Other times, there are rude questions where I think the poster is immature. I notice more immaturity and rudeness out of the anonymous responses myself. Personally, I don't care what anyone thinks, especially on this site....I never go ANON! If someone doesn't like me, or what i have to say...too bad for them! :)

  • I can't speak for all.... However I know the times I've asked questions anonymously it has either been because I was looking for input regarding an issues with someone I knew personally, who is also a member of this site, or because it had to do with something that I wasn't ready for the entire world to know about yet, and again, there are many people who are members of this site who I know personally, so sometimes a question could let out something that I am not ready to have as common knowledge.

  • I agree who cares. We are all adults and can chose to post anon or not, why does it bother you?

  • The few times I've posted a question anonymously its because I'm personal friends with some people on here and don't necessarily want them knowing its me thats asking. I've also posted anon because I new some snot ass person was going to comment rudely to what I was asking and I didn't want to be stalked through email or have them knowing it was me. My friend was followed around this site once by an anon literally commenting rudely on EVERYTHING she wrote, I don't want that happening to me.
